The U.S. Department of Justice and Securities and Exchange Commission are investigating Apple over its practice of throttling down older iPhone models without the knowledge of users. As per the announcement, some key features coming with iOS 11.3 include a battery health monitor, new Animoji, the ability to disable slowdowns, improvements to ARKit, and the introduction of Health Records.
From iPhone 7 units and older are affected by the system, not the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, Apple said.
Apple intentionally throttled the speed of most iPhones older than the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, both released late previous year, when the battery power was low or the software sensed the battery was old. Apple said its update was meant to circumvent the reboots. Even if the company manufactures fewer iPhone X phones, Apple could still have a strong sales quarter because the high price of the X may drive people to buy the cheaper, but still popular, iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, Larry Dignan said in a ZDNet analysis.
The investigation stems from an iOS software update Apple released in January 2017 that addressed an issue where iPhones with batteries that no longer hold enough of a charge shut down during processor intensive tasks.
We sought to further enhance the customer experience in December by announcing a significant reduction on replacement batteries for specific iPhones. These features will be included in a developer release next month and a user release this Spring.
